Spotify expands to Zimbabwe

World’s music streaming service, Spotify, yesterday announced that it is expanding it’s market to a number of African countries including Zimbabwe.

Spotify is a digital music, podcast, and video streaming service that gives you access to millions of songs and other content from artists all over the world. Functions of Spotify are playing music totally free, but you can also choose to upgrade to Spotify Premium.

Spotify coming to Zimbabwe means that Zimbabweans will be able to sign up using their real details and addresses as well as creating their personal accounts on Spotify.

New markets will have access to the service’s full global content library and Spotify will later adapt the catalogue to suit local tastes. Spotify will be working with local artists and rights holders in order to expand the libraries for each market.

In a statement, Spotify announced that it will expand it’s market over the coming days to a number of African countries.

This move from Spotify shows that there are some international services interested in Zimbabwe, after the recent move from Skrill of banning it’s operations in Zimbabwe.
